Tent Talks Featuring Jane Ruffino: Content is Infrastructure!
On Monday, December 18th at 12:00pm Central, Jane Ruffino joins us for a live Q&A session: “Content is Infrastructure!”
Jane is a research-driven UX content design consultant who has worked across a range of industries, including fintech, healthcare, mobility, HR tech, enterprise SaaS, travel tech, and retail, with clients across Europe, Asia, and North America. She’s been a journalist, documentary producer, and professional development educator. She is passionate about storytelling, plain language, and strong collaboration. With her one-person content studio, Character, she specializes in workshops and facilitation, but she’ll also happily write the words and stories that make your software go.
Jane is also pursuing a PhD on the contemporary archaeology of the undersea fiber optic cable network, giving Character a strong foundation in infrastructure-related projects, and extremely niche information. Originally from Boston, Jane spent much of her early career in Ireland, and currently lives in the Stockholm suburbs with her partner, an epic daughter, and adorable dog, Lusse (pronounced LOOS-seh).
About Tent Talks
Chicago Camps hosts irregularly scheduled Tent Talks with people from all across the User Experience Design community, and beyond. Who really likes limits, anyway–If it’s a cool idea, we’d love to hear about it and share it!
What is a Tent Talk? That’s a great question, we’d love to tell you.
Tent Talks are short-form in nature, generally lasting from 10-20 minutes (ish) in a recorded format–we like to think of them as “S’mores-sized content” because that’s pretty on-brand. Tent Talks can be a presentation on a topic, a live Q&A session about the work we do, or the work around the work we do, or really just about anything–we don’t want to limit ourselves, or you.
You should send along an idea or topic of your own so we can learn from you, as well! You don’t have to be a published author or a professional speaker on a circuit to be good at your job, so please, put yourself forward, and let’s have some fun, talk, and share your experience with others!
